Myndighetene i USA vurderer å forby laptoper på alle internasjonale flyvninger. Det sa den amerikanske ministeren for innenlands sikkerhet, John Kelly til Fox News søndag. Han sier det er tegn til at det foreligger en «reell trussel», ifølge VG Direkte.

I mars kunngjorde Kelly at alle elektroniske innretninger større enn en smarttelefon var forbudt i kabinen på fly mellom USA og ti flyplasse i Midtøsten og Nord-Afrika, men på et spørsmål om han er villig til å «heve standarden», sier Kelly at han kan komme til å gjøre det.

Ekstremistene er «besatt» av tanken på å ødelegge et fly i lufta, særlig fra et amerikansk selskap, mener John Kelly

Ngabwe Is Zambia's Top Choice for New Capital City

Lusaka

Zambia's Minister of National Planning Lucky Mulusa have identified Ngabwe in Central Province as the new site for the country's new capital city, according to the Zambia Reports website

When appointed as minister, Mr Mulusa embarked on a strategy to establish future plans that will help decongest Lusaka.

Lusaka has over the years grown with its population increasing at a fast pace over the years. According to the last census, the population in one of southern Africa's fast growing states was estimated at 1.8 million people.

Experts say the population in Lusaka has grown to over 2.5 million and is soon to breach the 3 million mark, and Mulusa says there was no proper planning for Lusaka to hold its current population.

The Ministry of National Planning is going to present to Cabinet a request to go ahead and do feasibility studies of the new capital city.

Mulusa says his ministry had devised a plan to come up with a new capital city that would be able to compete with other African cities.

"When you look at Lusaka in the next 10 years, the city will not be able to sustain us. The rate at which commerce and industry and official activities are growing cannot be met with Lusaka's ability to grow its capacity.


 

Mulusa said Ngabwe, west of Kabwe, was an ideal location for the capital city of Zambia because it was more central than Lusaka and it was easier to start building a city from scratch.

Det britiske parlamentet lukker dørene for offentlige besøk og begivenheter. - Alle omvisninger avlyses inntil videre med umiddelbar virkning, skriver parlamentet på hjemmesidene sine, melder nrk.no

Og, som en følge av terroren i Manchester har regjeringen for første gang iverksatt kriseplanen «Operation Temperer», som blant annet innebærer at 3800 soldater vil bli satt ut i Storbritannias gater, sier innenriksminister Amber Rudd.

22 mennesker, mange av dem barn og unge, mistet livet og minst 110 ble skadet, 20 av dem kritisk, da en selvmordsbomber sprengte seg selv i lufta under en konsert med den amerikanske artisten Ariana Grande på Manchester Arena i Manchester mandag kveld.

21,000 tilskuere var til stede på konserten, som akkurat var avsluttet da terroristen slo til.

Berlin seeks more Gulf tourists

Berlin

Berlin wants to attract 10,000 additional tourists from the Arabian Gulf countries this year, as the German capital city targets travellers seeking medical treatment, www.thenational.ae newspaper in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates reported.

Burkhard Kieker, the chief executive of visitBerlin, was in Abu Dhabi to meet government health officials and representatives of local private hospitals to promote the city as a medical tourism destination.

"Europe has been suffering due to the security situation for the past one year but we see a strong recovery in the number of tourists from the Gulf," Mr Kieker said.

Last year, Berlin received 50,000 tourists from the Arabian Gulf, of which about 12,000 were medical tourists, making it the second-most popular German city after Munich. This year, Mr Kieker expects the number of tourists from the Arabian Gulf to grow by 20 per cent and the number of medical tourists to increase by about 30 per cent.

"We expect an increase in medical tourists because leading families from the region come to Berlin, it is a city where you can feel safe, it has a large Muslim population, it has great shopping and has 28 five-star hotels," Mr Kieker said.

"There has been heavy investment in the hospitals and clinics, and an increase in Arabic-speaking staff."

The changes in insurance policies in Abu Dhabi that make it more expensive for some Emiratis to seek treatment abroad did not impact the patient numbers to Berlin, according to Mr Kieker.

"There has been a rise in the number of self-pay patients to Berlin because they do not want to wait in a line, although the majority of the patients are still government sponsored," he said.

Emiratis and Gulf medical tourists typically seek oncology, urology, cardiology, diabetology and trauma care treatment.

"An average Emirati patient can stay anywhere between two weeks and three months," said Nizar Maarouf, the vice director of Vivantes International Medicine, a Berlin-based healthcare group with nine hospitals.

Berlin has 80 clinics and hospitals such as the Vivantes hospital group and Charite Berlin.

The UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the top countries in the Arabian Gulf region to send medical tourists to Germany, including Berlin.

Etihad flies to Berlin twice daily from Abu Dhabi. Qatar Airways also connects the UAE capital to Berlin. Emirates is yet to get landing rights in Berlin.

Terrorist attacks in Europe have hurt its tourism sector. In its annual report, Emirates cited these terror attacks as among the reasons for soft demand to Europe from the region.

Miljøpartiet De Grønne (MDG) vil utrede en hyperloopbane - et slags vakuumtog - mellom Oslo og København. Partiet håper en slik bane vil være en realitet innen 2037, skriver VG Direkte

Vedtaket var et av de mest populære på MDG-landsmøtet i Lillehammer i dag. Et lignende prosjekt mellom Stockholm og Helsinki er anslått å koste 150 milliarder kroner.

En eventuell hyperloopbane mellom Oslo og København skal frakte både personer og gods, og turen vil ta bare 30 minutter.

The Jakarta Great Sale Festival (FJGS) 2017 is expected to increase the number of tourists visiting the capital of Indoneaia, a Jakarta tourism official stated, according to the Netralnews.com website.

"The FJGS program has continued to improve every year, and it is expected that the number of tourists will also increase through this activity," Head of Jakarta Tourism and Culture Service Catur Laswanto noted.

He remarked that Jakarta has an advantage in the form of numerous shopping centers and malls that make the capital a tourist destination.

"Unlike other regions that have natural wealth that makes them a tourist destination, Jakarta has several shopping centers, and this is a tourist attraction," Laswanto emphasized.

The tourism official is optimistic that the FJGS 2017 will be able to compete with various shopping festivals in other Asian countries, as the products on offer are more complete and are available at lower prices.

The FJGS will be held from June 2 to July 12, 2017. This event will be followed by 81 malls or shopping centers, 40 traditional markets of the Jakarta market operator PD Pasar Jaya, and 12 hotels and retailers from shopping centers.

During the FJGS 2017, a midnight shopping program or Midnight Sale will be held every week alternately in 27 shopping centers in Jakarta. In addition to the shopping program, the FJGS 2017 will also hold social activities.

In collaboration with the Jakarta Red Cross, the FJGS committee will hold Mass Blood Donation events in 36 shopping centers in Jakarta during the FJGS 2017.

Bratislava to attract tourists with campaign featuring historical figures

Bratislava, capital of Slovakia, aims to attract tourists with a new campaign based on personalities that have historical ties with the city, such as Maria Theresa, Albert Einstein and Pope John Paul II, The Slovak Spectator - Sme website reported.

The campaign will be launched in neighbouring countries, as well as in Germany and United Kingdom, the TASR newswire learnt from the Bratislava Tourist Board executive director Alzbeta Melicharová on May 17.

"Bratislava needs strong promotion," Melicharová said. "We were searching for the right form and decided to do so via these world-known personalities"

The campaign will be launched on social networks and at underground stations, airports and important international bus and rail hubs.

The board wants to communicate historical monuments, design and smart solutions that are important to Bratislava through people such as Albert Einstein. Maria Theresa was crowned in Bratislava 276 years ago. Pope John Paul II, who visited Bratislava a couple of times, will represent the proximity of Bratislava and its residents to the spirit of nature, coherence and sport, which unite people and create unrepeatable moments, Melicharová said, as cited by TASR.

Bratislava's annual coronation ceremony, at which the coronations of kings and queens of the Kingdom of Hungary are re-enacted, should be boosted into more of a tourist attraction, showing that the Slovak capital is proud of its rich history.

1.2 million tourists visited Bratislava in last year, an increase of over 15 percent from the previous year, when the one million limit was exceeded for the first time.

"We want to outdo these figures," Bratislava mayor Ivo Nesrovnal told media. "The first estimates indicate that we might succeed. This is thanks to the fact that Bratislava makes investments in cleaning, restoring monuments and reconstructing roads, so that tourists won't come here just for a few hours but will spend a longer time here and then return."

SAS prioriterer Oslo og Stockholm

Høye flyplassavgifter er årsaken til at SAS i sitt vinterprogram øker kapasiteten i Stockholm og Oslo og ikke i København, skriver travelnews.no

Selv om flyselskapet øker kapasiteten i alle de skandinaviske hovedstedene for kommende vinter, er det Oslo og Stockholm som får den største økningen.

- Årsaken til forskjellen skyldes de høye utgiftene på Kastrup, men også større etterspørsel ikke minst fra kundene i Sverige, sier SAS til det danske nettstedet Check-in.dk.

SAS har tidligere kritisert det høye avgiftsnivået på Kastrup, det har også den internasjonale luftfartsorganisasjonen IATA, som har understreket at flyplassen har to til tre ganger så høye avgifter som andre flyplasser i Skandinavia.

Ifølge Check-in.dk starter forhandlingene for neste avgiftsperiode, som begynner i 2019, mot slutten av 2017, skriver travelnews.no

Tourists often rent private houses in Azerbaijan

Baku

Baku is visited by more than 2.5 million tourists yearly. and Azerbaijan's capital city had the world's attention with hosting the Eurovision Song Contest, First European Games, Formula 1 race and now 4th Islamic Solidarity Games, the www.azernews.az website reported.

Azerbaijan can accommodate some 40,000 tourists in its 535 hotels, which include a series of luxury hotels - Excelsior, Hilton, Four Seasons, Fairmont, JW Marriott, Kempinski - as well as several budget hotels for cost-conscious travelers.

And, 25 hostels and 92 apartments for tourists operate in Baku. Rent of private apartments is gaining popularity and for some this is the best way to spend vacation in Azerbaijan.

Muzaffar Agakarimov, the adviser of the Chairman of Azerbaijani Tourism Association AzTA noted that more and more tourists rent private houses in the country.

Local residents lease out houses both in the center of Baku and on the outskirts of the city, according to him.

The expert noted the need to build new hotels in Azerbaijan. "The number of tourists visiting Azerbaijan is growing, so there is a need for new hotels," he said.

As many as 146 of the hotels are located in Baku and Absheron peninsula, Agakarimov said. In addition, some 25 hostels and 92 apartments for tourists operate in Baku, he said adding that all these facilities are private.

Bulks of the hotels located in the country are 5-3 stars, which sometimes creates inconvenience for low-budget tourists. 

Tourism in Azerbaijan has a thousand-year tradition. To make sure it is enough to remember the Great Silk Road, which contributed to not only commercial, but also cultural exchange. A special surge of interest in the country located on the Caspian Sea shore, however, arose during the era of hydrocarbon resources.

Situated on the Great Silk Road, and divided partially between Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Azerbaijan blended the best from both cultures, forming its own unique rich culture, that's why its people are neither totally Eastern, nor totally Western.

I år markerer Icelandair sitt 80-års jubileum, og feiringen skjer på vulkansk vis - selvsagt, skriver travelnews.no

Et Boeing 757-200 er omgjort til en flyvende utgave av ikke bare Islands, men Europas største isbre Vatnajökull.

Icelandairs fly er alle oppkalt etter islandske vulkaner, og i 2015 ble Hekla Aurora skapt etter inspirasjon fra vulkanen Hekla og nordlyset. Det er samme kunstnere som står bak forvandlingen til Vatnajökull og prosessen er ganske usedvanlig og komplisert, da dekoreringen er gjort for hånd, skriver nettstedet.

25 personer har brukt over tre uker og 195 liter maling for å gjengi isbreen, 1.062 liter i alt for å dekke hele flyet. Kabinen holdes i is- og vannfarger, kabinlyset er i blått og nakkestøtter, matvogner og servietter er dekorert for å gi en så autentisk opplevelse som mulig.

Egypt's Cabinet has approved to allocate a land plot on a space of 744,000 square metres to build a 4,800 MW power plant in the new capital city, the zawya.com website reported.

Egypt unveiled plans for a new administrative capital at an economic development conference in 2015, which was attended by 2,000 delegates from 112 nations, including heads of state, top multinational company executives and directors from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund,

The city will be built east of Cairo, between Cairo and the planned Suez Canal hub north west of the Gulf of Suez. It will include 1.1 million residential units to house five million inhabitants, as well as an administrative district with a presidential palace, ministries, government bodies, and embassies, as well as a financial district.

Oslo har verdens dyreste øl, ifølge en undersøkelse fra Deutsche Bank, gjengitt i Buisness Insider, skriver Dagbladet.

I oversikten er det undersøkt hvor mye det koster for en halvliter på en bar i et vanlig naboområde, og i en bar i et mer sentralt område av den aktuelle byen.

Sammenlagt er den billigst halvliteren får du på bar i Praha i Tsjekkia.

Der koster en øl i gjennomsnitt 1,30 dollar - som med ifølge Norges Banks valutakalkulator tilsvarer 11,20 norske kroner.

I Norges hovedstad koster en halvliter på bar 9,9 dollar, eller 85,26 kroner.

Andre dyre ølbyer er blant annet:

Singapore : 9 dollar - 77,51 kroner
Hong Kong : 7,7 dollar - 66,31 kroner
New York : 7.4 dollar - 63,73 kroner

mens du får deg en langt billigere halvliter i blant annet:

Johannesburg : 1.7 dollar  - 14,64 kroner
Lisboa : 2 dollar - 17,22 kroner
Cape Town : 2.1 dollar - 18,95 kroner

Tbilisi

Hilton has announced plans to introduce its flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand to Tbilisi, capital city of Georgia, with the signing of a management agreement with Granat LLC.

The 206-guest room Hilton Tbilisi is to open in early 2019. The building's historic façade will be preserved as part of the designs, while a striking glass roof will be constructed on top of the building and will house the hotel's rooftop bar and spa, the Hospitality Net website reported.

Located on Kostrova Street, the hotel will be equidistant between two of the city's most vibrant and colourful districts. Tbilisi's main thoroughfare, Rustavelli Avenue, is three kilometres away; spotted with picturesque architecture, it is home to the city's main cultural, religious and government buildings.

Vake, the city's busy commercial district and the heart of Tbilisi's financial centre, can be found the same distance in the opposite direction.Hilton Tbilisi will also be two kilometres from the city's main train station and 15 kilometres from Tbilisi International Airport.

In addition to the rooftop bar, the hotel will include an all-day dining restaurant, lobby bar and a street facing café. For business and events visitors, the hotel will offer more than 1,000 square metres of function and meeting space, in addition to an Executive Lounge and business centre.

Hilton Hotels & Resorts has 18 properties currently under development across Europe, with two hotels in Georgia: Hilton Batumi, in Batumi, capital city of the autonomous republic of Adjara, on the Black Sea coast, which opened in the summer of 2015, and Hilton Garden Inn Tbilisi Chavchavadze, which is currently under construction and set to open in 2018 in the heart of Tbilisi's financial district.
